  • Windows 7 boot manager cannot boot Windows 8 or Server 2012.

    You can use Dual-boot Repair tool for Windows 8/8.1 to fix the problem.

    1. Download .zip file and unpack in a new folder - no installation.

    2. Run the tool, click on "Automatic Repair".

    This will make Windows 8 boot by default.

    3. Reboot to Windows 8.

    In Windows 8 you can use Visual BCD Editor to add Server 2012 to boot menu.

    Just add a loader using key <F9> - "Create missing Windows loaders".

    If <F9> cannot find Server 2012 automatically add a Windows 7/8 loader using key <F7> and change "ApplicationDevice" and "OsDevice" of new loader to correct drive letter.
